The Halloween Ends trailer has felt like a long time coming, but it's actually only been nine months since Halloween Kills (2021) was released in theaters. But now, Universal Pictures has released the first teaser for the upcoming film.

Check out the official trailer for Halloween Ends below:

The trailer might not reveal all that much, but that's hardly a bad thing. The trailer for Halloween Kills showed us almost every one of Michael's unfortunate victims, but this time, Halloween seems to be playing things close to the chest.

You'll probably notice how simple and more linear things seem this time around. Halloween Kills was criticized for feeling a little all over the place from start to finish, but Halloween Ends appears to be taking things back to basics.

Straight off the bat, we're transported back to the beginning of John Carpenter's 1978 classic, as we see from Michael Myers' point of view as he stalks the hallways of a house on Halloween night.

But there's a twist, of course - Michael's sister Judith isn't vulnerably waiting in her room, this time it's Laurie Strode, who doesn't seem at all surprised to see Michael Myers. She's been waiting.

We get a lot of flashbacks to the original Halloween (1978), but whether or not Halloween Ends will take a leaf out of its predecessor's book and re-create a sequence set in that year remains to be seen.

Halloween Ends takes place four years after the events of Halloween (2018) and Halloween Kills, both of which are set on the same night in 2018. Director David Gordon Green has said that the film will even "address the pandemic".

We also know that the movie will officially conclude David Gordon Green's new Halloween Trilogy, which ignores every movie in the franchise with the exception of the 1978 original.

But how the filmmakers intend to wrap things up will for now remain a mystery. Even more so following the somewhat confusing end of Halloween Kills, in which Michael Myers is more or less portrayed as immortal.

However, to no surprise whatsoever, this won't be the last Halloween movie. Producer Jason Blum recently confirmed that while this is the end of Blumhouse's Halloween series of films, there will be more in the future.

Either way, we're very excited to see how things will go down between the ultimate "final girl" Laurie Strode and Michael Myers. Even if this is the second final showdown. Or third.
